Reviews for Slow Cooker Shredded Beef
"Very good idea...we were a little short on time and ingredients so we decided to use bottled barbecue sauce...it was still very good though!"
"My husband I love the taste of the shredded beef. I will be making this often. Thanks Idell"
"I am going to try this with a good cut of deer meat."
"BTW, stew meat is $3.29/lb here- I used a lean chuck roast for $2.49 that I cut out the fat and gristle out of- only took 15 minutes. I "paid" myself at the rate of $9.60/hr (I saved myself $2.40 for 15 minutes worth of work)."
"This falls somewhere between a "sloppy Joe" and a Grinder..."
